    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I had multiple interviews with dreamworks and most of the time the person interviewing me is not prepared. Doesn't really ask too many relevant questions. They never give you a chance to show them you're the right fit. So be prepared for that.

    Contract Administrator Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DreamWorks Animation (Glendale, CA).

    Interview

    Applied directly with the company. Within about a week, I was being interviewed. Met with one person for the interview. In my honest opinion, that person's behavior was hostile, agressive, abusive, and incredibly unprofessional. It became clear to me why the former position holder left the company for another opportunity.

    It was fine. Every one was really nice and casual. I don't think that I'm a good fit, but I liked everyone. It's a very casual atmosphere, but they get their work done. They're also very open about what the position is and what exactly you'd work on.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DreamWorks Animation in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. They called me a few weeks later and asked some basic questions, then scheduled an in-person interview. I interviewed at their campus in Burbank. Was very nice, easy going. Except that I had arrived 45 minutes before my scheduled interview time, and the lady did not come to take me in to the interview until 30 minutes after I was supposed to go in, which was frustrating.
